After checking out this site, I have two comments:

1) What's with the National Geographic-esque banner?
2) Was the site's copy written by someone whose native tongue is English?

1) other than the first part of the banner animation, I didn't think it was too National Geographic-esque

2) in the teeny-tiny credits at the bottom it gives the name of the webmaster as David Citron. Not a guarantee that he's an English speaker, but that doesn't sound non-English-speaking (e.g. Russian) to me.

For those of you with RealPlayer, here's a story about this project and the re-entry itself from NPR
